Five years ago I set out to determine whether Facebook killed the high school reunion for a piece I wrote in the Hollywood Journal. If you'd like to read that previous post first, please do so now because SPOILERS...
I’m a sports girl. I’ve always loved a cold beer and live action sports. My husband and I enjoy going to live games and also viewing from the comfort of our own couch. One of my favorite "before kids"...
We all have that one friend. Some of us have a few, or ten. They are constantly filling your feed with sales and ads and tips and tricks and silly games. Or maybe you’ve re-connected with an old friend...
